The Eclipse wins 3 awards at The Irish Film & TV Awards

With THE ECLIPSE, Tony Award-nominated writer/director Conor McPherson (SHINING CITY, THE SEAFARER) brings his dramatic powers to the screen in horror-love story hybrid. Ciarán Hinds (MUNICH, THERE WILL BE BLOOD) plays a widower living in an Irish seaside town who is struggling to adjust to his new role as the sole caretaker of his two children. When he volunteers at a local literary festival, his life converges with an author of supernatural fiction (Iben Hjejle, HIGH FIDELITY) and a self-obsessed novelist (Aidan Quinn, LEGENDS OF THE FALL). The love triangle engenders passion and rage, and Hind’s character finds himself increasingly haunted by apparitions too vivid to be mere nightmares.

Magnolia Pictures is pleased to announce that Conor McPherson's acclaimed ghost story, THE ECLIPSE, grabbed three top prizes at the Irish Film and Television Awards this Sunday, Feb. 21. The film picked up the awards for Best Irish Film, Best Script (McPherson and Billy Roche), and Best Supporting Actor (Aidan Quinn).
